Viking Church – Lillehammer, Norway | via

Lilyhammer is back! Netflix is totally owning television right now and every show they bring out is better than the last. I recently fell HARD for Lilyhammer, a show where a mobster snitches in exchange for a new life in Norway, and yesterday the third season was released. You guys know where to find me this weekend!

The history of spectacles was a quick but super interesting read. I’ve been wearing glasses almost my entire life (I got my first pair when I was only 18 months old). My glasses are a part of me and I’m always baffled by how often Matt loses his. I guess when you only need them to read or drive they aren’t as important? ANYWAY. I’d love to read a little more about this.

Chocolate Fudge Pistachio Cake Donuts. Um, yes please.

Ursula K. Le Guin totally stole the show at the National Book Awards. I hope to be half as feisty when I’m her age.

Also from the National Book Awards, Daniel Handler apologized over some pretty insensitive and racist jokes. I applaud his apology though – I believe he is sincerely sorry for his words.

This article is from earlier in the month, but it made me FEEL. A columnist for The Atlantic wants you to stop making excuses and finish the books you start. She says people who abandon books halfway through are lazy and not finishing a book is wrong. Oh honey. No. I’m debating wrting a separate post on this one. Do you force yourself to finish every single book you pick up?

  1. I’m watching Lilyhammer this weekend, too! I’m so in love with that show, and thankfully the weather gods have given me nothing but pouring rain so I have every excuse to marathon Lilyhammer with no guilt.

    Pfft, I am a ruthless DNF-er. Life is too short and there are too many books I want to read. I did the math, I won’t be able to read all the books I want to read before I die, and that’s even assuming I live a really, really long time. And that’s not including any books that haven’t been published yet. So, yeah, I’m DNF-ing the boring ones. Sorry Atlantic lady!
